• potent
  • Ethyl Ether on the other hand is a fairly potent anesthetic but falls short of ethylene in some respects. (wikipedia.org)
  • Antipsychotics (a.k.a. neuroleptics or tranquilizers) were investigated by the anesthesiologists De Castro and Mundeleer who coined the term neuroleptanalgesia, an anesthetic process that involves combining a major neuroleptic tranquilizer/antipsychotic with a potent opioid analgesic to produce a detached, pain-free state.

  • The Science News Letter, 1934) As vinyl ether was unknown in its pure form, Leake approached organic chemists at Berkeley asking them to synthesize this novel anesthetic. (wikipedia.org)
  • With the shift in social attitudes, women became less reserved towards this novel practice and began coercing physicians to administer powerful anesthetics during labor. (wikipedia.org)
  • bupivacaine
  • They have a slower onset and longer half-life than ester anesthetics, and are usually racemic mixtures, with the exception of levobupivacaine (which is S(-) -bupivacaine) and ropivacaine (S(-)-ropivacaine). (wikipedia.org)
  • Agents
  • Agents that are administered in association with anesthetics to increase effectiveness, improve delivery, or decrease required dosage. (nih.gov)
  • however, the analytical techniques used to study its pharmacology laid the groundwork for the testing of new anesthetic agents. (wikipedia.org)
  • Leake predicted that vinyl ether would combine the properties of two anesthetic agents, ethyl ether, and ethylene. (wikipedia.org)
  • Effects
  • Using samples received from Princeton, in 1930, Leake and fellow researcher Mei-Yu Chen published a brief study characterizing the anesthetic effects of vinyl ether upon mice. (wikipedia.org)
  • Combinations of anesthetics are sometimes used for their synergistic and additive therapeutic effects. (wikipedia.org)
  • the toxicology report concluded that the cause of death was "acute intoxication" resulting from "the combined effects of oxycodone, hydrocodone, diazepam, temazepam, alprazolam, and doxylamine" and "that the manner of [his] death" was "accident, resulting from the abuse of prescription medications or combine drug intoxication (CDI). (wikipedia.org)
  • volatile
  • Vinyl ether, also known as divinyl ether, divinyl oxide, Vinethene (pharmaceutical trade name) and ethenoxyethene (IUPAC), is a clear, nearly colorless, volatile liquid which was briefly used as an inhalation anesthetic. (wikipedia.org)
  • depression
  • The relationship between the amount of general anesthetic administered and the depression of the brain's sensory responsiveness is arbitrarily, but usefully, divided into four stages. (britannica.com)

  • airway
  • However, most of the halogenated anesthetics are irritating to the airway, perhaps leading to coughing, laryngospasm and overall difficult inductions. (wikipedia.org)
  • properties
  • Simpson's later personal discovery of chloroform's anesthetic properties inspired subsequent trials with chloroform that he went on to make public in November, 1847. (wikipedia.org)
